Sunday School- 3 years through 6th grade

During the school year, our Sunday School programs for children and teens meet at 10:30 am in the school building, except on the first Sunday of the month. On first Sundays, we have a first Sunday family worship service at the 10:30 am service time, and no Sunday School for children. Our family worship service gives our community an opportunity to worship together in a “kid friendly” format and allows teens and children to serve as readers, ushers and more!

Our Sunday School format shifts in June – get the details

Sunday School shifts to summer format in June

Our young people will have opportunities to grow in faith with meaningful lessons that connect them to God’s story. Special events will give hands on opportunities, put faith in action and help kids draw closer to a loving God. Building community, establishing deeper friendships and encouraging children to reach out will be the goal. The children will return and join their families and the congregation in time for Holy Communion.

Preschool class for 3-4 year olds

This year we offer a new preschool class for 3-4 year olds! This class is packed full of fun-filled activities centered around helping preschoolers know Jesus through purposeful play and joy-filled worship.

Grades K-3: Dig-In & Godly Play

This year we offer a new curriculum, Dig-In. Kids will be lead through walking in Jesus’ footsteps from birth to resurrection to ascension. Kids won’t just learn about the historical Jesus; they will get to know him personally. They’ll discover that Jesus is a real person—a real friend—who makes a difference in their lives today.

Godly Play will be offered once a month. It is a Montessori-based curriculum that brings the Bible to life, giving children a foundation and understanding of God’s story. Gifted storytellers retell stories just like ancient storytellers passed down the sacred stories of the Bible. Children will see the “sand of the desert,” the “chains of the Israelites” and have a time to question and respond to the story with paint, clay and even Legos. The children are invited to choose an artistic response to the story.

Grades 4-6: Grapple

Our tweens will use a new curriculum as well, Grapple. Grapple will help 4th – 6th graders own their faith. This curriculum was created knowing that preteens need the truth, with a goal to help them find it. Grapple lessons are based on real questions asked by real 10, 11, and 12-year-olds. Here, tweens will learn how to search the Bible for answers and build a faith foundation that guides wise choices.

Grades 4-6: Grapple

First Sundays are Family Worship Sundays

In our church’s Sunday schedule, the first Sunday of each month offers a family worship service at 10:30 am, giving families an opportunity to worship together in a kid-friendly way, but there’s no Sunday School. Young people of all ages will be involved in our worship with readings, a children’s sermon and activities during worship.
